BROOKLYN - City officials are urging residents to stay in cool places as much as possible during the summer heat.

They say residents should use an air conditioner or go to a cooling center.

They also advise people to check in on friends and family, especially those vulnerable to heat.

Other tips from the NYC Office of Emergency Management include staying hydrated by drinking water and avoiding beverages with alcohol, caffeine or a lot of sugar and to wear light weight and loose-fitting clothing that covers as much skin as possible. 

The city strongly advises residents to never leave children or pets in a parked car during intense heat.

Cooling centers will be open for those trying to beat the heat.
